AET to install energy and emissions management system

AET has ordered the NAPA-DSME Power software system for installation on four newbuild 319,000 deadweight tonne (DWT) VLCC vessels.

The systems will be installed at DSME’s shipyard in South Korea, with the scheduled delivery of the first of these vessels set for January 2013.

NAPA-DSME Power has been designed as part of a collaboration bewteen software house NAPA and Korean shipbuilder Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co. (DSME), with the companies claiming that it can be used to save up to 5 per cent of a tanker’s fuel costs.

Using sensors integrated within DSME’s latest tanker designs, the system monitors energy efficiency, emissions, fuel consumption and trim.

This data is immediately accessible to officers onboard, along with weather updates, arrival times and other key performance indicators to inform decisions and enable efficiency optimisation in real-time.

The software can also be used to assist in maintaining compliance with energy and emissions monitoring and reporting regulations, which are anticipated to grow over the next few years, not least through the upcoming Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP) legislation that takes effect from January 1st 2013.

"With tightening environmental regulations and increasing operational overheads, the maritime industry continues to face an evolving and challenging market," said Matti Salo, president, NAPA for Operations.

"At NAPA, we are committed to developing products that deliver tangible benefits to customers, directly supporting their ability to effectively manage this cycle of change."

"In choosing NAPA-DSME Power, AET has selected an innovative approach to operations management that will provide them with the ability to benefit from fuel efficiencies whilst simultaneously managing their environmental impact."

    Klaveness Ship Management has expanded its contract with DNV GL after a successful pilot of the DNV GL Veracity platform.

    The contract expansion will see another eight Klaveness vessels use Veracity. According to the companies, the pilot project, which began in 2019, indicated that a reduction in fuel consumption was possible by combining and visualising operational, positioning and engine data.

  • ClassNK, JMU, NAPA complete feasibility study on 3D models for shipbuilding

    ClassNK, Japan Marine United (JMU), and NAPA have completed a joint feasibility study on 3D model-based plan approval using 3D CAD models as part of their technical investigation project.

    Shipbuilding designs are gradually transitioning from 2D drawings to those designed with 3D CAD software. Classification societies, whose plan approvals are currently based mostly on 2D drawings, are also required to develop a scheme for 3D CAD models from their submission to their examination completion.

    This project was conducted to examine the technical development required in each process of plan approval by JMU, NAPA, and ClassNK to realise 3D model-based plan approval. In the feasibility study, ClassNK conducted a trial evaluation for hull structural design on a 3D CAD model of 300,000DWT ore carrier designed and created by JMU, using NAPA Designer, a 3D CAD software application for ship design developed by NAPA, as a 3D model viewer. Plan submission, storage, and notification of examination results were made using the Society's electronic plan examination system NK-PASS.

    The investigation concluded that information required for class approval can be confirmed through a 3D CAD model, and that "NK-PASS" is also compatible with 3D CAD models. The results of this survey will serve as a basis for future technical studies, and the Society will continue to work with the industry to realise 3D model-based plan approval.

    Mr. Hayato Suga, corporate officer and director of plan approval and technical solution division said “This study has proven the future potential of 3D model-based approvals. 3D based design can be the key to improving digital solutions in the ship industry, including the ship design process, approval process and later fleet maintenance. I hope that the entire industry will also quickly realise the many opportunities and increased efficiency that can be achieved as a result of this initiative. The vessels of the future will be able to accommodate much better and safer designs in shorter amounts of time.”
